If they compared 56k download off a old phone line and put the flash card strapped to a drunk pig, the pig will probably will as well. WarraWarra September 27, 2010 7:35:32 PM The aim of the comparative review was to see which travels faster: video uploads by rural broadband or by pigeon post. Well not really a 56k modem. So what is biased ?
